Message from the Principal
My sincere thanks for the very warm welcome I received at the beginning of Semester 2. I have really enjoyed the semester and I am excited to be part of such a high achieving, caring Christian learning community.
I would like to acknowledge the wonderful work the staff (teachers, teacher aides and office staff) do in educating and caring for the children of Star of the Sea School. I am very impressed with the quality of staff that we have here at our school and the commitment they display, and I believe that our children are extremely blessed to have such dedicated and caring people in their lives.
We are also fortunate at Star of the Sea School to share a strong partnership with our parents/guardians. Thank you for your support throughout the year. I thank all those parents, grandparents and family members who have made time to assist with a wide range of activities with the P&F, school board, fundraising activities, banking or working with students in the classrooms. Your contributions are certainly very valued by the staff and the children alike.
I wish to congratulate our students for making 2013 such a successful year. I particularly congratulate our Year 7 students for their wonderful example of Christian servant leadership. I extend my best wishes to this Year 7 class, and to those students whose families are moving from Star of the Sea School. I wish you every success in your new school, and hope that you will look back on your time at Star of the Sea School fondly.
Our final mass of 2013 will take place this Friday at 10:30am. Students are able to be picked up from their classroom following the Mass at 12:00 noon. We would love to see many of our families (including siblings) come to celebrate the wonderful school year that we have had.
Wishing everyone a happy, holy and safe Christmas season, and I look forward to another great year in 2014.
